  • I was hoping to run the new SMS vendor for a month but it came apparent within a few days that the cost was going to become an issue. Note that less than 1% of users actually use this feature.

    Thus, to receive SMS notifications directly from the server it will require a premium membership to cover the cost of this service. If you previously had SMS notifications setup I've granted you temporary premium membership until 5/31/2019.

  • Swapped out our code for sending SMS notifications for near by locomotives (setup via Website > Profile > Notifications).

    Previously we utilized a free way of sending SMS messages but that has been proving to be unreliable over the past year. With this new vendor; they charge $ per SMS per phone number. With this extra cost we'll be monitoring the expense over the next month and may have to lock down the feature to paid accounts only and/or throttle free accounts.

  • Per NSDash9.com the NS F-Units are being renumbered to avoid a conflict with the NS AC44C6M rebuilds. They'll be dropping the leading "4" from the unit numbers.

    Effective today the NS numbers within HU have been renumbered to match this

    NS4270 becomes NS270
    NS4271 becomes NS271
    NS4275 becomes NS275
    NS4276 becomes NS276

    A big thanks to Chris R. Toth for sharing this information with the railfan community.
